Holiday season means increase needs at local food shelf

The Two Harbors Area Food Shelf served a total of 400 families last November and December and those numbers are expected to increase for 2016.

THAFS is asking for support from the community this holiday season to ensure all of their neighbors have access to healthy and hearty meals as the temperatures get colder. Items which are especially needed include: canned soups, pasta, hot cereals, canned beans, fruits and vegetables.

"It is our hope to provide turkeys and all the fixings to each family who visits this season," said THAFS Director Michelle Miller.

A Cash & Food Drive through a business, organization, place of worship or student group is a wonderful way to support the local food shelf, Miller said. Cash always makes a larger impact as THAFS can access food at a significantly lower cost, however, all donations are appreciated. Turkeys do need to be kept frozen and space at the food shelf is limited. Please contact THAFS to arrange delivery times to ensure all donations are accommodated. In addition, volunteers are needed throughout the week to unload, stock and distribute inventory. Times are flexible and all ages are welcomed.
